police kill man in wheelchair, Mark Ruffalo & Peter Coyote support #RiseUpOctober

Friends,

Every day, the need for #RiseUpOctober -- the National March on Oct 24 in NYC, the Say Their Names reading and protests on Oct 22, and the non-violent direct action on October 23 -- becomes more acute.  The potential for this to be a major turning point grows as well.

The final three weeks are decisive, and you are needed!

Friends,

Every day, the need for #RiseUpOctober -- the National March on Oct 24 in NYC, the Say Their Names reading and protests on Oct 22, and the non-violent direct action on October 23 -- becomes more acute.  The potential for this to be a major turning point grows as well.

The final three weeks are decisive, and you are needed!
Delaware police just pumped an unarmed, paralyzed Black man full of lead. Kept firing til Jeremy McDole's limp body fell from his wheelchair into the street.  Worse than a dog.  THIS MUST STOP!

It is so critical that 100 families of police murder victims will converge in NYC for #RiseUpOctober.  It is critical that you -- and many, many others that you help mobilize -- stand with them

Yet, so many are caught up in confusion -- and no small amount of bullshit. Below I share an excerpt from Revolution Newspaper (revcom.us) that takes on some of the wrong thinking that too many are caught up in.
I am happy to share that Mark Ruffalo, actor and activist, just donated $2,500 to enable families to travel to NYC to say the names of those killed by police.

Then he tweeted to his nearly 2 million twitter followers. ​Thank you, Mark!

Peter Coyote, actor and activist, has also stepped forward to endorse #RiseUpOctober and lend his voice to this fight.

Many more prominent people need to use their platforms to support #RiseUpOctober, this important opportunity to make a major leap in STOPPING police terror and challenging all of society: WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?

Everyone can build this fight by DONATING NOW.  Will you do this?

Hit "reply" and let me know how else you can throw in.

An excerpt from a piece called "Reality Check" at www.revcom.us:

Codifying Racism into the Law


Every time another pig uses “I feared for my life” as a justifiable legal excuse for the straight-up murder of unarmed Black or Latino people, this system is codifying racism into the law. They are saying that it’s legally “justifiable” for an armed enforcer of this system to murder someone based on their racist, white supremacist ideas—ideas that are shaped by this racist, white supremacist system. Such a system is murderous and decrepit, it’s totally fucking illegitimate and needs to be swept away!
